"A personification of the causes of the crisis occurs in which the concrete dislocations are attributed to qualities of the targeted group of persons or nations. Amid this personification, the social system in which these scapegoats operate is not considered. Capitalism has long sedimented into a natural state of humanity about which there is no more reflection than about gravity.
The crisis broke out because all the actors brilliantly fulfilled their economic functions in the market economy. Capitalism finds itself in a system crisis because all economic subjects do what the system demands of them as efficiently as possible..
The capitalist work society finds itself in a permanent self-contradiction in which the most efficient use of paid labor displaces paid labor from goods production.. The success of the computer and electronic data processing triggered enormous rationalizations that made paid labor within goods production more and more superfluous. Thus work ends in the work society because all actors work ever more efficiently by applying the latest technologies."
